Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a complete lockdown across the country for 21 days from March 24 midnight, asserting that social distancing is the only way out for the country in its decisive battle against the coronavirus.
The experience of countries, which have been able to contain the virus to some extent and experts' views have made it clear that social distancing caused by a lockdown is the only way to break the cycle of the infection, he said.
Bollywood actor Paresh Rawal took to his Twitter handle and used some word-play on the viral word these days — 'Social Distancing'. 'Hera Pheri' actor came up with a Hindi term for it and called it — TAN DOORI (Translation: Body-Distance). Meanwhile, "Tandoori" cookery is also an Indian method of cooking over a charcoal fire in a tandoor, a cylindrical clay oven.
Finally got the Hindi name of social distancing.— Paresh Rawal (@SirPareshRawal) March 26, 2020
Fans couldn't stop laughing reading Paresh Rawal's tweet. National Award winner Ayushmann Khurrana too 'liked' the tweet. Many Netizens also used Paresh Rawal's popular memes from his cult film 'Hera Pheri' and said the joke was too funny.
